decidedly, there’s a peak & steep fall.
some THING that gathers in a pool
at the edge of memory
not quite lapse
not quite thought
imagine dried luminol
in the foyer
after failing at coexistence.
imagine ghost limbs
in the summer
while you try to get on.

Had to look up luminol. CSI stuff. A very interesting view of the murder of a relationship, which, I think, is how most end. Though over time. Slowly. The actual parting seems sudden, but it is predictable. The motives adding up. I like and I dislike this poem. Like it for its accuracy. Dislike it for the same reason. It is a painful thing.

Oh goodness, it took too long for me to come back here.. It’s been a whirlwind month. I appreciate your thoughts on this. It’s painful for me as well.. Even rereading it. I’m glad we can share the pain. 🙂
